So I'm 46. Been skating about 4 years. Can skoot about a bit, the odd axle stall and stuff. But theres a couple of things I want/need to learn:-

1. Frontside kick turns. Yeah, I know - basics. But I've never bothered to relearn them since I started skating again and now I'm finding that backside everything is limiting. I can frontside carve after a fashion but I don't have a `get-outta-jail' frontside kickturn.

2. Ollies. Probably going to be the hardest thing ever to learn. I kinda know how to do them, but knowing and doing are two different things. There were no ollies when I was a kid. Any tips/advice appreciated.

I'll report back from A&E as I progress...
